In a new interview earlier in the year, leading actor Annaleigh Ashford shared her deep admiration for the original Mrs. Lovett, theater icon Angela Lansbury.
"I forever hoped of becoming Angela Lansbury as I grew older, since she personified the ultimate role actress. She possessed the skill to discover comedy and life, as well as humanity within every single persona she played… She performed in an era when the prevailing influence was the patriarchy, and she navigated with grace and affection… On all occasions I met her — our paths crossed thrice — I cried tears in an manner that was uncomfortable enough for me to withdraw."
